Texas man Douglas Egan dressed as woman arrested for photographing women in bathroom
A Texas man dressed in women’s clothes allegedly snapped photos underneath a stall in a mall bathroom, then brandished a pepper ball gun as he was fleeing the scene, according to police.
Douglas Egan, 45, is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and improper photography.
A female victim noticed the cellphone underneath the stall on Christmas Eve at about 4:30 p.m. at Hulen Mall in Fort Worth.
The woman confronted the suspect, described as “a male that was dressed to look like a female,” who attempted to flee the mall.
Another person witnessed the confrontation and attempted to intervene, but the suspect allegedly reached into his backpack and pulled out what appeared to be a handgun then pointed it at the male witness.
The suspect then left the mall and a handgun could be seen in his waist band as he changed clothes, according to police.
Officers arrived and arrested the man. It was determined that the weapon was a pepper ball gun.
Egan is being held at the Tarrant County Corrections Center on a combined $30,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
